First, are you a graduate of any of the following?

  • Gateway Voyage residential retreat
  • Exploring Consciousness 2-day workshop
  • Outreach Excursion 2-day workshop
  • Gateway Experience® Online course
  • Gateway Voyage Virtual Retreat
  • Online Beyond Meditation

If you answered “yes” to any of these, then you are eligible to start your own local chapter close to home!   We have volunteers who are happy to support you in this process.  Chapter members often meet monthly to listen to an exercise and share experiences and insights. Others prefer to start in a more casual way, such as meeting for coffee or lunch with a few other people who share a common interest in consciousness.  Meetings vary in length from 1-3 hours.

Thank you for your interest in the LCN! We look forward to hearing from you.
